In what is certainly a very tragic story, multiple conflicting reports have hit the web about the actress’ condition. We’ve listed them, and their sources, but as soon as a confirmed report from her family and/or representatives is released, we’ll let you know.
Time Out New York is reporting that the actress has died as a result of her injuries, citing “sources close to Richardson’s family and friends.”
Perez Hilton initially posted that Richardson had been declared brain dead, but that post is gone and instead he is reporting that the actress has passed away.
The Huffington Post says that the actress is brain dead.
TMZ says the actress has been flown to a new hospital.
As of 1:45, both People and Us Weekly had not reported any news of the actress’ passing and have only reported that she is hospitalized in serious condition.
TMZ says that Richardson is sedated and that her brain is swelling, but she is not brain dead. I have to say, all this coverage of her condition is gross. I know I’m participating by posting it here, but when major new outlets are saying someone is dead, before any official statement has been made, well, that’s how bunk rumors are spread and I’d like to make sure you’ve got the real info. So yeah, that’s where things stand. I’m not gonna post any more info on this until someone says something official and truly hope Richardson pulls through. Gonna go wash my hands now.

Portia de Rossi was on wife Ellen Degeneres’ show yesterday, the seven month anniversary of their wedding, which, you know, might be ruled as illegal, thanks to Prop 8. Very cute interview, check it out! Keep reading »
Hugh Jackman, star of Australia, host of this year’s Oscars, and the Sexiest Man Alive recently appeared on Japanese TV, with hilarious results.

In an interview with Los Angeles Confidential that just came out, Beyonce says that Jay-Z “is my first relationship.” We were curious about whether she meant he was the first guy she was serious about or if he’s the first guy she’s ever been with, period, so we did a little investigating. According to an interview last year, Beyonce had “one romance when I was 13 to 17, but we didn’t, you know…” And since then, she said she’s only had one boyfriend. At first, we were shocked, but then we weren’t humping everything in sight when we were in high school, either.
Since Beyonce is married to her supposed one-and-only, she probably won’t have to deal with the backtracking other stars have done after making similar statements (not that Beyonce ever said she waited until they were married to jump Jay, but the girl didn’t get around). After the jump, a few famous “virgins” who recanted (or got their words misstated by magazines). Keep reading »
“Slumdog Millionaire” thrust Freida Pinto into the spotlight. Since the film was nominated for (and then won) a million awards, she’s attended every major awards show, been scrutinized by the press for her clothing choices, had her relationship with Dev Patel speculated about in the tabloids, and sat in the front row at fashion shows in Milan. What’s next for the Mumbai-born rising star? Possibly a role in the next James Bond film. Rumor has it that Pinto has been asked by the film’s producer to do a screen test with Daniel Craig. Sure, being James Bond’s love interest sounds pretty sexy, but being a Bond girl isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be. After the jump, a look at past Bond girls’ careers, post-007. Keep reading »
Ten years ago, Gwyneth Paltrow was a Hollywood golden girl. She won an Oscar, she dated Brad Pitt, and then she married a rock star. (Okay, he’s more like an emo star.) She even popped out a couple of cute kids and nobody said boo when she gave Apple and Moses silly names.
But, with the GOOP blog and the rabbit-food-diet rumors, Goldilocks is so tarnished, it’s no wonder she’s out of touch. Nobody wants to join Gwyn’s new NYC gym, which she is starting up later this year with her (and Madonna’s) trainer, Tracy Anderson, because the price is so ridiculous. Girlfriend wants $4,500 just to join, plus hundreds of dollars each month in fees. Just to exercise! What recession?! Gym representatives are cold-calling potential customers, but instead of joining, they’re just laughing, padlocking their wallets, and calling the tabloids. [NY Post] Keep reading »
Remember when Mischa Barton thought she was too good for “The O.C.” and left the show in order to pursue a movie career? Well, Mischa Barton movie star never materialized. In fact, the only noteworthy thing Mischa has achieved is her D.U.I. arrest in 2007. Okay, I’ll be fair and mention her fugly headband collection for Stacey Lapidus. Oh, and she hosted Blackbook‘s Hollywood party last night. Now, Mischa is returning to her TV roots by taking on the role of Sonja on “A Beautiful Life,” an upcoming CW drama about male and female models living together in New York City. Sonja is a veteran supermodel struggling to stay on top in the high fashion world, so she and Mischa have a lot in common. But Mischa isn’t the only “O.C.” alum who is struggling after leaving the show. Keep reading »
